A new model of the tidal flows around Cowes has been produced to show the impact of the new Cowes breakwater
A new model of the tidal flows around Cowes has been produced by hydrodynamic consultants ABPmer to show the current impact of the new Cowes breakwater, as well as the forecasted impact of the planned Shrape breakwater extension.
Cowes harbourmaster Captain Stuart McIntosh said:
‘Leisure and commercial users may find ABPmer’s video animations of tidal flows of particular interest, like I do. These tidal simulations are taken from the new, powerful hydrodynamic model and illustrate tidal patterns in and around Cowes Harbour and the adjacent waters of the Solent.’
